  • 3.5mm Stero Female Headphone Jack
  • 6"-12" Auxilary Cable
  • (OPTIONAL) Auxilary Cable Splitter

Build Instructions: https://www.hackster.io/nick-engmann/alexa-eye-giving-an-echo-dot-some-personality-38705e

*** NOTES *** This code uses features specific to these boards and WILL NOT work on normal Arduino or other boards!

How-to guide for the original Uncanny-eyes project with parts list is located here: https://learn.adafruit.com/animated-electronic-eyes-using-teensy-3-1/overview

Teensy 3.x: use 72 MHz board speed -- 96 MHz requires throttling back SPI bitrate and actually runs slower!

Directory 'software' contains Arduino sketch for PJRC Teensy 3.1 & Adafruit M0 & M4. 'graphics' subfolder has various eye designs, as #include-able header files.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
